State Performance Plan Indicators

Local Education Agency Reporting Requirements




The Texas Education Agency (TEA) collects data from local education agencies (LEAs) for the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR). LEAs are required to report data on sixteen State Performance Plan Indicators (SPPIs) identified by the United States Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (USDE/OSEP).

LEAs are required to provide valid, timely, and reliable data that reflect the measurement for each SPPI. TEA considers data certified and submitted by LEAs to be final and uses the LEA's performance on the Indicators in the annual determinations analysis. Any issues related to the submission of inaccurate data or the non-submission of data is addressed by the Division of Special Education and the Department of Review and Support.

The data sources and requirements for collection vary by reporting priorities or SSPIs.
